Metro students know their history - History Day winners abound!

Another History Day Competition is, well... history, and Metro students proved they know their stuff! Students at John Early Museum Magnet Middle and Meigs Middle Magnet worked hard for months, including after school and on weekends. They did loads of research, built websites, made documentaries, wrote papers and plays, and put together good old fashioned exhibit boards.

The History Day Competition is an event from the Tennessee Historical Society. It brings together schools from all over Middle Tennessee to show off student projects and historical knowledge. The students work all year long to discover, research and interpret historical topics.

Projects that place in the top three for each category will go on to the state competition in April.

Enough background. Who won??
